I can't say enough good things about this hotel. It has been beautifully refurbished, the pools are fantastic, and the staff are so friendly and so helpful - especially Katie, Helena & Joe. We were given a fantastic room with a balcony in the Catalina building on the top floor overlooking the quiet pool. It was really lovely. And if you have forgotten anything they pretty much have everything you might need - nothing was any trouble. The food is great, there is also a Starbucks in the morning and the bar is fab. It's lovely to eat/have a glass of wine out on the terrace with the palm trees! The kids loved the family pool, especially the water slide and the kids activities which were free every friday/sat while we were there. The shuttle buses to Balboa and Fashion Island were so handy and such a brilliant idea for guests. The only negative I would have about this hotel is that some of the rooms do over look the car park and I think perhaps the hotel could maybe put up some kind of attractive screening for guests. They have put in so much effort this hotel and it all is so lovely, that it seems a shame that some guests should have to look at a car park during their stay. I would have been very disappointed if we had been given these rooms, although I'm sure that they are very nice inside. The only other thing is that during their 'concert series' at the hotel they use a few of their top floor rooms as 'concert boxes' on a friday night - of which we were opposite. It seemed very inappropriate to us, to use actual hotel rooms in this way, and although it wasn't a massive deal & only for a couple hours, it felt intrusive having our bedroom just opposite these functions and then having drunk people make a ton of noise as they were leaving at 10pm. Crazy! HOWEVER, all in all a brilliant hotel and I would definitely recommend it. It is also in a great location to explore California - Disney is about 20 mins away and it took us 1hr to get to LA, and we had a great drive down the coast to San Diego.
